Bonaparte Is Denied Bail While In DMC Lockdown As He Raises HIPAA Issues

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 8 – Hector Bonaparte sought release from pre-trial detention in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, which is under COVID lockdown due to infections on the 5th and 7th floors.

He is housed on the 6ht floor of the MDC.  

On December 8 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.   

 Bonaparte's lawyer said he could have gotten a gun if he'd wanted one; instead, he only texted about it. The AUSA said Bonaparte was providing guns and drugs.  

Judge Caproni said, based on the prospect of danger to the community, she would not release Bonaparte. She did however direct the AUSA to inquire with the MDC why it could not give Bonaparte a colonoscopy more quickly.

 Bonaparte's lawyers expressed "surprise to learn that the government and the Court had communicated separately about the medical records, and that the government could easily and quickly obtain them in the absence of a HIPAA release or any consent from Mr. Bonaparte."

The case is US v. Bonaparte, 19-cr-862 (Caproni)
